This is flame shaped tea light holder. The top is a 4 piece I/O turning from pecan wood and the base is a piece of scrap Acacia wood I picked up at the saw mill here in Az. It has a natural edge and a ring of turquoise inlaid in the top. This gave me an opportunity to use the new steady rest for the first time. I used a battery operated tea light as a real one might burn up the piece. It was design as you go project and I changed my mind on it several times.
The 4 pecan pieces were cut from this log:
They were screwed together for the first cut.
The top is screwed to the base with 2 #6 screws. The original plan was to make a bayonet base but since I can get to the switch and the battery cover from the hole in the bottom, the screws worked just fine.
It is 8” high and the base is 6 1/2” long. I finished it with Danish oil and clear lacquer.
